Study Links Eating Breakfast to Weight Control

Are you gaining weight by skipping breakfast?

A new study presented to the American Heart Association last week says people who eat breakfast are 55 % less likely to put on excess pounds or develop diabetes later in life. Exercise technician Donald Kovach with ETMC says "there's a possible link between not eating breakfast and overconsuming calories throughout the day." But he says the study fails to consider the most important factor in weight control -- total calorie intake.

"I don't really think they have the control in the study that could actually show a cause-effect type relationship," Kovach says.

Kovach does agree eating breakfast helps people spread out and monitor their daily calorie intake, but he says it's what and how much you eat that still makes the difference.

The study did consider other factors like exercise, age and gender.
